CMAS Graduate Portfolio Plática: Jorge A. Segovia

"The Use of Mentoring to Impact Retention Amongst Latino Males, and My Role Within Project MALES"

Latino student retention and graduation at four-year institutions continues to be a major concern among college and university officials. Whereas mentoring has long been associated with the apprentice model of graduate education, it is increasingly viewed as a retention and enrichment strategy for undergraduate education. This portfolio plática by Jorge A. Segovia  highlights the work of a collaborative project that specifically examined the role of mentoring. The plática also discusses Segovia's role as a Mentoring Site Coordinator for Project MALES and the future direction of the program.

Jorge A. Segovia is a masters candidate in the Department of Educational Administration with a Graduate Portfolio in Mexican American Studies. His supervisor is Victor B. Sáenz, Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Administration.
